A meeting was called today by the Bilberry Park Advisory Committee due to the recent violence in Shreveport’s Queensborough neighborhood.


Community leaders gathered to discuss additional security measures.

Councilmen Sam Jenkins says he wants people to be safe and don't be afraid to have a relationship with the police.

"The most important thing they can do is pass on information about any suspicious activity... What I got to say to the bad guys is its time to go," says Jenkins.


He also said more officers are patrolling the neighborhood hoping to prevent crime.
